I agree with most of the postings that more or less are saying RS has nothing better to do than attempt to stay relevant and in the public eye. A list like this is sort of like baseball stats-people just love to talk about them and get caught up in them. It is just fun.  

But let's face it-RUSH never has and never will be loved by the so-called "cool" critics.  I mean they would have had you think R.E.M. was the greatest single rock band ever, at least in the mid-80's. Meanwhile, I never "got" them. I don't own an album of theirs and would never pay to see them live. They are a band that because critics loved them, we were supposed to cherish them too.  

By the way, many years ago, a critic out here in Los Angeles got ripped by fans for saying Barry Manilow sucked while Manilow was selling millions of records and selling out shows night after night.  Fans ripped the critic asking him if Manilow sucked so bad, why do people love him. Manilow shurgged it all off. Same case for RUSH, I think.

Old and irrelevant news, my friend.

You know, if some magazine or organization shit on [my friends or] someone I'd admire, I would take it personally.

Why would you take it personally? That makes no sense. RS doesn't know you or owe you. Just because RS is shit and doesn't like RUSH doesn't mean they're taking a personal jab at you.

Johnny, you need to start Thinking Big!

On their Top 500 list there are:
- no Rush album (e.g. Moving Pictures)
- no Judas Priest album
- no Yes album (e.g. Close to the Edge)
- no King Crimson album (e.g. ITCOTKC)
- no Deep Purple album (e.g. Machine Head)
- no Iron Maiden album (e.g. Number of the Beast)
- no Kate Bush album (e.g. Hounds of Love)

But two Green Days albums(Dookie and American Idiot) made the list. These things tell me that their list is absolutely idiotic!

Those 2 Green day albums are excellent.

I agree. They are both really good albums. Especially American Idiot. Jesus of Suburbia is a masterpiece

That being said, not having Moving Pictures on a top 500 list is pretty lame. But the list was made in 2012 and Rush has gained a lot more credibility with the mainstream outlets like Rolling Stone since then. They kind of became a trendy band to like, and Rolling Stone loves to try to be trendy. I would bet that it would make the list if Rolling Stone did it now.

It's Rolling Stone. Expecting a quality/fair list from them is like asking the sun not to come up in the morning.

Iirc, Cobain is in the top ten, and I'm sure Alex probably doesn't even make the list.

It's a total joke that Cobain is on the list at all, much less top 10. Considering the source, I assumed it would be that way.. The readers of RS would have a collective heart attack if that rag did any kind of top list that didn't include Cobain and/or Nirvana. I think Jan Wiener is President of their fan club. I've never seen one media source worship a band so much. Nirvana has reached this ridiculous mythical status as a result. . They weren't terrible, but weren't great by any means. Rolling Stone has officially declared them better then the Beatles and the most important thing to the survival of our planet. Might as well change the name of their magazine to Nirvana monthly.
